We Are Catalant

We help companies go from strategy to execution — fast.

What We Do

Catalant helps more than 30% of the Fortune 100 get from strategy to execution faster, with software that helps businesses accelerate mission critical work and more than 65,000 experts and 1,000 firms who help them deliver it.


Today, most companies are ineffective at executing their strategies. One of the biggest problems is that companies lack the operational clarity they need to effectively execute their strategies. They have no idea what work is being done, what value the work is driving, who’s doing the work, and whether those people are engaged and productive.


Our platform is designed to enable the process of strategy execution, starting with entering in a business’ most important strategic objectives, aligning work and breaking it down into distinct elements, accessing and deploying needed internal and external resources, collaborating to execute it, measuring the work’s value, and providing insights to keep improving how it all gets done.

We started as HourlyNerd, an online marketplace for elite independent consultants. Then our customers convinced us to think bigger. Some of the largest, most successful organizations in the world started using our software to not only find strategic contingent talent, but to execute their most important initiatives. So we invested in that vision.

Today, top global companies like Anheuser-Busch InBev, GE, Highmark Health, Pfizer, and Bain & Company use the Catalant Platform to accelerate and deliver some of their most important work with our software and access world-class independent consultants and firms. We’ve grown by leaps and bounds every year we’ve been in business, and we’re just getting started.
